DESCRIPTION
	   The XSetDeviceMode request changes the mode of an input device
	   that is capable of reporting either absolute positional
	   information or relative motion information. Not all input
	   devices are capable of reporting motion data, and not all are
	   capable of changing modes from Absolute to Relative.

	   XSetDeviceMode can generate a BadDevice or BadMode error.

DIAGNOSTICS
	   BadDevice
		  An invalid device was specified. The specified device
		  does not exist or has not been opened by this client via
		  XOpenInputDevice. This error may also occur if some
		  other client has caused the specified device to become
		  the X keyboard or X pointer device via the
		  XChangeKeyboardDevice or XChangePointerDevice requests.

	   BadMatch
		  This error may occur if an XSetDeviceMode request is
		  made specifying a device that has no valuators and
		  reports no axes of motion.

	   BadMode
		  An invalid mode was specified. This error will also be
		  returned if the specified device is not capable of
		  supporting the XSetDeviceMode request.
